Then why are the thakur's labeled as entertainers and the Saxes as boring.
When these exact crimes and criminals are despised and hated in the civilized world,then why are they cheered as entertainers. I am tired of seeing these characters glorified day after day. The world is becoming a poisonous place to live as it is, why do we have to tolerate violence and evil even in the form of entertainment.
I am very disappointed because although Pratigya is the protagonist she has been given no power whatsoever to fight the evils. Why hasn't she been able to win any of her battles? Why is evil been shown in this serial winning day in and day out.
Are there any answers? There are news that Pratigya will be moving out of TN. Why did Krishna not protect her even after she took a bullet for him. And now he is siding with his evil mother. Is he that gullible? What about holding her hand and promising to trust her always after he nearly lost her to death? Was it just mere words? He is suddenly a mama's boy?
If Pratigya has to leave TN and a result of Krishna blaming her and not supporting her, then it better be for good. I do not want her to come back in that house or in Krishna's life. She took a bullet for him for heaven sakes.
Anu, just want to answer the first part of your questions. I know it seems from the forums that everyone loves the Thakurs and finds the Saxenas boring. Even I am one of those ppl, I can't stand the Saxenas. But the reason which you stated is wrong. I believe I speak for 99% of Thakur lovers when I say that no one finds them entertaining because they are criminals.
Infact, everyone is against this aspect. No one supports them as criminals. You will find that everyone condemns their immoral behaviour. No matter how much we love them, we never support any wrong actions like their plots to kill Prats, their attempt to bury Kesar alive, their getting Shakti out of jail to name a few. Ppl do like Shakti for his entertainment value, but no one supported him when he did a second marriage.
The reason most of us love the Thakurs, is because they entertain us with their flawless acting, their comic timing, how they seem to show emotions towards each other like ppl in a real family do. They're happy at times, they'll pull each other's legs, Krishna-SS show a wonderful father-son relationship. And although they are corrupt, they seem real.
Despite all our love for them, we still would like to see Shakti behind bars, Amma and Sajjan Singh paying for their actions.
Coming to the Saxenas, yes, I personally find them very boring. I know they are portraying the average middle-class family that wants the kids to follow the right path, put stress on education, and just simply be honest law-abiding citizens. I myself belong to a family with similar values. But my family is not like the Saxenas. We do not sit around everyday with long moping faces, starting everyday with a depressed face and ending it with crying. We also have difficulties in our lives, but we take responsibilities for our mistakes and get back to normal. The Saxenas simply refuse to acknowledge that they can make mistakes. Also, the way the CVs have portrayed their charcters, it's as if the Saxena family considers themselves superior to everyone else because they are educated. Education does not absolve a man from all crimes/mistakes.
Simply put, to me, the Saxenas seem biased towards their own family and predujiced towards others. Plus, they seem to act too formal even within themselves, not something the Thakurs do. The Thakurs are very casual within their family, just like a real family is.
That is the only reason you find so much support for the Thakurs on the forum, and very little for the Saxenas. We DO NOT "find murderers, molesters, wife hitters, rapists, conspirating to kill daughter-in-laws entertainers". We find them entertainers because they interact with each other like real people do.
